The Ordine Iniziatico dei Cavalieri della Luce welcomes all “freethinkers”, provided they be of age, upright in their moral conduct, and in good standing within their community.
What is sought for in a candidate is the kind of worthiness which is not merely proven by – or based on – official documents, but is potentially capable of affirming pure spiritual values, understood as a transcendent quality above all individual ties.
As it is necessary to evaluate each candidate’s natural dispositions, a careful process of selection is required, which rules out any lower, vulgar form of sweeping proselytism: for each individual can only develop a potential that is already within himself; and it is precisely these faculties that constitute the qualifications required by our Initiatory Order.
A close observation of candidates ensures optimum scrutiny. The main obstacles here are not related to gender or biological racial differences, or indeed to economic standing, social visibility or the possession of superficial knowledge. Rather, this scrutiny is exclusively meant to evaluate candidates’ inclination to self-investigation and capacity to draw upon natural predispositions that may help them sustain an “active” personal effort and prepare for the kind of elevation which is the prerequisite of a certain “race of the spirit” – regardless of purely material conditions.
